A New Design Inspiration

OntheWaytotheMetro

My husband used to commute to Culver City, which is a horrible drive, traffic-wise, from Burbank. Instead of driving, I used to drive him to the metro station, where he’d hop a train for the rest of the way. Usually, by the time he was done with work and back off the train ready for me to pick him up, the sun was setting. I snapped this photo as inspiration for a design, which I’m very close to finishing. I love the way the poles all line up with the sky doing a beautiful color change.

I haven’t posted as much lately because I’ve been working nonstop, but this is a little teaser of my newest pattern, which I will publish as soon as I find the time to finish knitting it. It’s a scarf, which I was originally doing with stranded colorwork, but then decided to reknit using the shadow knitting technique I just learned. The stranded piece was coming out nicely, but I realized the concept was perfectly suited for shadow knitting. However, I am thinking of writing both versions of the pattern to release together. What do you think?
